Build error on ignored branch?

I have the following filter config:

        ignore: gh-pages

However, when I push to gh-pages, CircleCi starts a job that fails with the following logs:

#!/bin/sh -eo pipefail
# No configuration was found in your project. Please refer to to get started with your configuration.
# -------
# Warning: This configuration was auto-generated to show you the message above.
# Don’t rerun this job. Rerunning will have no effect.
Exited with code 1

Here’s a link to the said job. Is there something I’m doing wrong or is this normal behaviour (to start a job that always fails)?

Hi Paul. It looks like that tree doesn’t have a config file, which is why you are getting that error

If we can’t see the config, we don’t know to not try and run a job.
